Girls on the stairs

Me and my friend Valentina, we met at our usual place, Vogue’s balcony smoking a cigarette and, guess what?, we’re perfectly matched with men style shoes, socks and pants in stripes and squares. Aren’t we cool?

Class action

Pantaloni arrotolati, calzini cool e nappine sulle scarpe.
Si vede che sono donne molto art department…

Rolled up pants, cool socks and little tassels on the shoes.
It’s crystal clear these girls are from the art department.

“Queste scarpe hanno più di vent’anni”, dice Carlo.
“Vuoi vedere una cosa? Oplà!”.
Qui sotto, potete vederla anche voi.

“These shoes are twenty years old”, Carlo says.
“I show you something: tah-dah!”.
Below, Carlo’s show and tell.

Noi due ci sediamo sempre sulle scale antincendio del balconcino nella redazione di Vogue. Chiacchieriamo, fumiamo una sigaretta e commentiamo le pagine di gossip di Vanity Fair. Dovreste vederla, Valentina è uguale a Gwyneth Paltrow, ma con i capelli neri.

The two of us use to sit on the firestairs near the little balcony of Vogue’s offices. We chat, we have a cigarette, and we comment on the gossip pages of Vanity Fair. You should see her: Valentiana looks like Gwyneth Paltrow, but brunette.
